CORDOVA, Tenn. — Alexandre Kim, 24, has been indicted for the death of his mother.

Estelle Kim, 51, was found dead in her home after a fire there was put out.

This happened in October 2012 in the 9000 block of Higden Cove.

Investigators say Kim told them he left his mother at home and went to get something to eat when the fire started.

Police however noticed blood on Kim’s clothes.

“A witness told investigators Kim had walked to the house before the fire left a short time later wearing different clothes and that the house caught fire about ten minutes after he left.”
